This rustic wooden cabin is nestled in the quiet forest neighborhood of Peninsula San Pedro, a rural small farm area 20 Km west of Bariloche.
The Peninsula offers lake shores either on the bay or facing the open lake, both only a 5 min walk away.
A thriving forest. A home to birdsongs.
This is a no - wi - fi, no-cable-tv destination. The cabin is a tribute to simple living.
Instead, we offer a tranquil space where you can enjoy the sounds of nature, good conversation, or become captured by the sight and sound of fire burning in the rustic fireplace.
Dirt roads and a short walk through the forest will bring you here, and buffer you from the sounds of the city.
Though nestled along the edge of a forest with the feel of tranquility and isolation, the cabin has access to public transportation services.
There is room for two on the second floor bedroom (which can be arranged either as two individual beds or as a queen size bed), and a double futon in the living room downstairs. Clean sheets are provided upon arrival.
The bathroom has shower and a bathtub, clean towels are provided. The kitchen comes equipped with an oven & stovetop as well as a refrigerator and a small coffee maker. There are sets of four dishes ad utensils and basic cooking pots you may need for stopetop or oven.
The cabin is equipped with a wood burning fireplace, and a natural gas heater, as well as an electric towel heater in the bathroom.
Guests have the option of setting up a collapsible table and chairs that seat two people, though the cabin is set up to either eat on stools in the kitchen area or in the living room area on the coffee table.
The cabin is reached by a back road and a dirt path that cuts through a forest in the last 50 meters. The property also has a private family home on it, though with a separate yard area.
You will enjoy your own private yard overlooking the forest. There is also an herb garden for you to harvest and enjoy, located within the cabin´s yard.
The cabin is located at the far back end of the property, and guests will need to walk about 50 meters through the forest before reaching the cabin. Please note that, though the cabin is always lit, this path through the forest is not. That's why we recommend you bring a flashlight.
Andrea will meet with you for check-in and check-out processes. If needed, she may be available to coordinate a time to stop by and share insights regarding local culture, activities, and ecology. She also understands that some folks may come in search of solitude, however, and is respectful of this as well.
There is no internet service in the cabin.
There is no laundry or dish washing machine.
If you would like your clothes laundered, a laundry service may also available at an additional cost of USD 10 per load, subject to availability & confirmation by Andrea.
The per night rate is for two people, there is a separate per person fee for up to two additional guests.
The hot water in the cabin is provided by an electric water heater that provides very hot water-- be careful and always mix with cold! Also, Bariloche sometimes has power outages, especially during winter months. These outages have usually lasted a few hours, at most, but this does not guarantee that a power outage may not extend overnight. In these cases, the cabin's hot water heater will cease to continually heat the water until power is restored (But since the water heater is indoors, the heated water will actually stay hot for a good amount of time). We do not have a power generator and if this happens during your stay you should be prepared to wait it out.
In order to really get the most out of your trip, it's best to rent a car for the duration of your stay. Landscapes here are vast and distances are long. You will be able to have a great time getting around by bus but it will take you longer to get out and about.
Lastly, there is no security alarm in the cabin. To date we have never had a single break in attempt and no such things occur in the neighborhood area. However, we do still recommend that guests take valuable belongings when they leave the cabin or leave them out of sight.
The stairs are built from a twisted log with steps carved into it. They are dangerous for small children or for people with reduced mobility, and may be uncomfortable for particularly tall people as well.
Among things to bring: flashlight and house slippers.
We welcome nature lovers of all ages, and very much appreciate guests who respect that this is a quiet neighborhood were we live with our neighbors and sleep at night. Excessive noise at night is not something we expect from our guests.
Smokers are welcome, outside! There are several ash trays in the front of the cabin´s sitting area.
We love children, but our staircase is only suitable for children with full mobility capacity and we estimate that five to six year olds or above will be able to manage. This overrides the criterion mentioned in the instant booking rules as we have indicated that it is appropriate for children 2-12 in order to allow older children to enjoy the place, but cannot accept children under six due to the dangers posed by the staircase.
Born and raised in the U.S. from an Argentine family, I dedicated myself to practicing cultural anthropology in the field of environmental conservation in Latin America for almost fifteen years before becoming a mother in 2010. While I worked for The Field museum of Chicago and with The Nature Conservancy Argentina, I enjoyed two of the most amazing jobs in the world. I worked with countless indigenous communities in the Amazon to help incorporate their strengths into protected area management plans. A few years later, I also worked with a host of stakeholders (from gauchos to corporate leaders), to help protect Argentina´s Patagonian grasslands, which are threatened by desertification. Since then, I have dedicated myself to the most challenging and rewarding of all fields, being a mother to my son, Cirilo.
I have a passion for horses that stands at par (or beyond), my passion for nature. Life experiences have taught me to appreciate the importance of good humanity and simple living as key ingredients to building a better world for the future.
We speak both English and Spanish fluently, and our doors remain open to any questions or curiosities you may bring.
What I enjoy most about hosting is the opportunity to meet amazing people who also appreciate the spirit of simple living and rustic comfort with which the cabin was designed and built
